Over the past weeks, we have been eagerly following the news related to The Medium , the latest horror game from Bloober Team, referring to the Japanese classic of the genre – the Silent Hill series . The trailer created by Tomasz Bagiński was viewed by 2.7 million people on YouTube. At the moment, on Metacritic, the title boasts an average rating of 73 points, but it may even increase as there are numerous opinions indicating that we are dealing with a great artistic success. Nevertheless, the game divided the critics, as Piotr Babieno, president of Bloober Team, referred to:
I’ve always said that I’d rather our games get extreme ratings than just good but unemotional. The scatter of ratings (from 3/10 to 10/10) shows that our games move the audience, that they reach their interior. It’s the kind of cultural product you’ll either love or hate. No intermediate colors
